Pleasures Unboxed

Featured

We’re throwing ourselves a little party on Saturday December 6th and YOU are invited!
Pleasures Lessons InviteTo celebrate the launch of A Box of Pleasures, an e-book only box-set of all four Pleasures titles (The Pleasures of Winter, The Pleasures of Spring, The Pleasures of Summer, The Pleasures of Autumn) we are throwing a blog splash on Saturday December 6th 2014.
Box of Pleasures 3DThe idea is that you ask Evie a question and post the answer either to your blog, to your Facebook page or on your Twitter account – or indeed anywhere online – on Saturday December 6th.

You can ask Evie anything about anything – writing, romance, rude stuff (!) – and in return, you’ll receive a pleasure: a digital copy of The Pleasures of Winter. (If you’ve read it already, you can nominate a friend to receive it instead.) All participants will be entered into a draw to win a prize: two full sets of the Pleasures books, personally inscribed by Evie, one for you to keep and one for you to surprise someone with this Christmas.

To enter simply tweet using the hashtag #pleasuresunboxed or leave a comment on this post and we’ll be in touch!

Pervertables

silicon spoonSo you’ve decided to go kinky for Halloween, and now you just need the equipment to play.

Sure, if you have several thousand to spare, you can build and equipment a play room to rival Jack Winter, but most of us don’t have that sort of money. Plus, it’s really embarrassing when your mother-in-law comes to visit and wants to know exactly what you do in that room. It’s hard to convince her that the A-frame is really just for drying shirts, or that you don’t have a vacuum cleaner and use those paddles to beat your rugs by hand.

So Evie’s treat this Halloween is a list of pervertables, BDSM toys you can buy on a budget and which won’t embarrass you if they are found around the house.

Comfort Bondage

comfort tie 2Bondage. Being spread-eagled on the bed, with hands and feet tied to the pillars of the four-poster while the wickedly handsome pirate advances on the trembling victim. That’s the normal vanilla image of bondage.

The kinky version is someone suspended, in a spider web of hemp ropes which have been waxed by virgins.

But there is plenty of bondage in between, and a variety of reasons for tying someone up. There is sensual bondage, where the rope is like an extension of your hands. Predicament bondage, where the victim (sorry, bunny!) is tied in such a way that no matter what she does, she’s in trouble. And the one that everyone forgets about, comfort bondage.

Finding love on the Internet (when you are not looking for it)

A Touch of PassionI don’t want to mention my age, but let’s just say I have teenage children and I wasn’t a child bride. In general, getting older is great, you gain more confidence as you worry less what other people think. I’ve even found I’m more attractive to a lot of guys. But I’ve discovered that women of a certain age attract one group that I could do without.

I’m on various social media websites. In theory, this is so I can tell people how wonderful the next book is going to be—and yes, A Touch of Passion will blow you away. In reality, it’s because I love to talk. Most of the people I meet are lovely, warm and genuine. But there are exceptions.
